Who's Who in Late Hanoverian Britain: 1789 To 1837 (Who's Who in British History Series) by G. R. R. Treasure (1987)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811716449, Hardcover)Stackpole is pleased to introduce the final two installments in the Who's Who in British History series. Chronologically arranged and extensively indexed, these eight volumes are an indispensable guide to the people of 2,000 years of British history, from kings and archbishops to artists, warriors, and revolutionaries. Each volume paints a portrait of an age. Unlike in typical biographical dictionaries, entries of the subjects are placed in the contexts of their time and the chronological arrangements foster a sense of intimacy and narrative, allowing readers to read the volumes from cover to cover and to gain new insights into the particular era's history. The late Hanoverian period was exceptionally rich in culture, thought, and political activity. There were poets, in the shape of William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, and William Blake; military heroes, like Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington; statesmen such as William Pitt and Charles James Fox; and philosophers, like Bentham and Malthus.
